You sure that's not the low band antenna? I've been all over the state and only place I've seen them was on the commercial enforcement trucks. Used to be they had them on the old Expeditions they'd use in the Sierras, but I haven't see one of those in a few years.

If they are, it'd be interesting to know what they are using them for. With the use of CB tapering off so much and the need to add other radios for interoperability, squeezing another antenna on those guys must have been a challenge.
